Out of the Blue

The unofficial start of summer was certainly authentic: I did some grilling yesterday and practically cooked myself in the heat along with the food. The silly thing is that I could have remembered to use this head cooking chamois thing I recently picked up for such occasions, but it slipped my sun-baked mind. I'll be sure to remember it next time. And as noted previously, today is Memorial Day here in the U.S., which has a solemn intent of honoring fallen soldiers, so here's a salute to all who have made such sacrifices, and sincere hopes for a future with fewer dead soldiers to honor.

Memorial Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: ControlCraft 3.
Creeper World 3 Abraxis.
Stories: I Went to the Nutritionists' Annual Confab. It Was Catered by McDonald's. Thanks Cutter.
What It Costs to Fly at the 75 Busiest U.S. Airports.
Vote for Vader: Star Wars’ Sith Lord loses in Ukraine mayoral elections.
Science: El Niño Looks More Likely for Summer, and with It Drought Relief for West.
Media: Kid has an extremely tough decision to make.
Aug(De)Mented Reality.
City flooded within 5 minutes.

Blue might as well wait it out at this point. Phones with bigger screens and better resolution don't really need specially formatted mobile sites anymore. I find myself more often than not searching for the Desktop link because I find mobile versions of sites to usually be very lacking or non-intuitive.

Eh I don't know, This site looks pretty awful on my phone which has a huge screen and a decent resolution. All of the zooming and etc required is almost comical, I basically just give up and look at other places. It's fine on a tablet but that's a whole different ballpark. I don't see phones getting 10" screens any time soon so I think its a worthwhile investment. As JD pointed out, its probably a better idea to update the site in general for readability on more devices. This sort of thing will start to affect page rank and ad revenue eventually. Blue has been updating the site by hand using Frontpage 2000 and the base its built on is like 20 years old. It's easier said than done but the site really needs an update in general, the actual layout can be preserved anyway.

thats like a speck of dust on the tip of the iceberg

Hmm?
